The Premier League has always been an attraction for top players from all over the world due to the financial possibilities and the sporting level. Top athletes from the Bundesliga also regularly moved to England. With Newcastle United there has recently been a new representative from the British elite league, whose newly won economic power will stir the market.
According to ‘Sport Bild’ there are also some players from Germany on the NUFC’s list. The German sports newspaper names Filip Kostic (28) from Eintracht Frankfurt and Niklas Süle (26) from FC Bayern as candidates for the Magpies. Kostic was about to move to Lazio Rome before the season, but ultimately stayed with the Adler. Süle’s contract expires next summer, Newcastle could offer the German international an exorbitant salary.
Another name that is mentioned is that of Erling Haaland (21). Borussia Dortmund’s top scorer is more of the type of player that the new managers would like to see appear in St. James’ Park in the medium term. Before the newly rich club qualifies for the Champions League, personal details of the caliber Haaland in Newcastle are likely to be among the unfulfilled wishes of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Werner realistic as a transfer target?
However, Timo Werner from Chelsea should also count as a possible reinforcement on the offensive. At the moment, the striker is not completely satisfied with the Blues, he said in interviews. The reason for this: Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku (28) for 115 million euros in the summer. The Belgian storm tank immediately took Werner’s place in the first team and scores regularly.
If nothing changes in Werner’s situation in London, the former Leipzig professional will reorient himself. Then it will depend on what possibilities arise for the clippers. Financially, Newcastle should have all means to meet the requirements of the 25-year-old – only the sporting aspect is currently an obstacle. Newcastle are second to last in the Premier League and are arguably fighting to stay relegated this season.
In the medium term, however, you want to aim high. In addition to the transfer goals mentioned, they also deal with prominent names such as Philippe Coutinho (29) from FC Barcelona, Mauro Icardi (28) from Paris St. Germain, Donny van de Beek (24) from Manchester United. And the wish list is even longer.
